The bike was running fine in the evening. Rode to work parked the bike took the key out. The battery was dead in the morning. Put the 10 amp charger on and the motor started to turn over with the key off!...

your starter button is malfunctioning. maybe some oxidation in the switch. when starter button is pressed in that can cause your other electrical stuff to not work.

Sierra 1500 wont turn over 350. locked up???

Have the battery tested for a dead cell. It may test at 12 volts but that doesn't mean there isn't a dead cell. Also, if the motor has good compression you probably shouldn't be able to turn it over by hand at the fly wheel. Maybe an old school motor with V belt, but not a newer motor with all those accessories attached to the front.

Rv well not start starter well click but well not turn motor over and battery is at full charge

even though the battery can measure a full voltage (which measure a difference in potenual) the battery can still be bad by not being able to provide enough current to the starter to turn motor over. if you have a battery charger that can be used to jump start the car or use jumper cables from another running car and it starts the problem is the batt. if it doesnt start the you have to check if starter is binding up. this could be from engine siezing up or starter binding on fly wheel
